Professionally Speaking

It was amazing

Magic happens when you live admirably. Just yesterday we (Disney) repeated as the 4th most admired company in the world according to Fortune.

It was amazing.

At least three times my client said that.

In roughly five minutes between other people coming in and out of the conversation as the session concluded.

Later a text:

The team keeps talking about the presentation and YOU!!

To which i text back:

Wait, what? i’m just a messenger. Walt’s genius deserves the credit for the architecture. PS. Thank you.

Bold statement on the book’s back cover.

Pretty catchy too.

Ordinary Dad’s would love having you as their Son. You are amazing at so many things. Thank you for your wise counsel on TED Talk opportunities, after listening to another 18-minute practice round as the Orlando Sun sank into the horizon.

Emotion Trumps Everything

The power of sincere feedback

College dining hall
Turned around last night to grab a photo of where we just finished eating dinner.
encouraging text message
This encouraging text message about my new Podcast arrived while we had dinner in Baltimore last night.

The power of sincere feedback. And i quote:

“Your joy is so pervasive in your delivery.”

A positive blind spot.

Didn’t know.

Why?

No one told me before.

It’s a hope that listeners feel it. Yet without validation, all you can do is wonder.

If Disney Ran Your Life

It’s who you know

Glacier vacation home
i’m assuming my relationship with Char facilitated a quick and easy cancellation approval.

 

Make feedback normal. Not a performance review.  – Ed Batista

 

There are enough unscrupulous people to influence the negative stereotypes of vacation home renters.

What might have been a drawn-out hassle of proving extenuating circumstances, wasn’t.

Char didn’t flinch in immediately refunding my paid-in-full reservation.

For the past year, i’ve communicated with her in manageable chunks and often paying compliments about her cabin and to her community.

Could This Change Your Life?

Funny how a kind word has the power to motivate

Home Bus transportation. And home to the happiest place on Earth.

 

Funny how a kind word has the power to motivate.

The 61-year old Gold’s Gym personal trainer (Charles) came over and shared just one small piece of positive feedback. It was so insignificant small, yet so powerfully motivating.

There is no greater wisdom than kindness.

Say nice things to people. They rarely hear nice things about themselves.
